Carol Singing

I think I am just about going to make this in time! It's been a while since I entered a Penny Black challenge and because I am now going to try and make all the challenges I enter as Christmas cards I could not resist this sketch:

And I knew I had the perfect image (somewhere)! I bought the pre stamped images ages ago from ebay, so I've coloured it with watercolour paints and inked the edges with black and brown inks.
The papers are Papermania 6 x6 A Wonderful Christmas Time and are lovely! The buttons are from my stash (if you can see them - sorry about poor lighting!) and the twine just adds that sort of something to it!

A quick card really. Don't know why it took me all week to make it! I have another of these images so think I'll make another one just like it!
  • Papers: Papermania A Wonderful Christmas Time 6 x 6 stack
  • Image: Penny Black coloured with watercolour paints
  • Everything else: My stash
